Theresa May has continued her campaign of criticism from the backbenches, questioning the government's thinking over England's month-long lockdown. The former PM pointed out the problems with the now-infamous 4,000 deaths a day graph used by Vallance and Whitty at Saturday's press conference. 

In fact, she went a step further, pointedly telling the Commons: 'For many people, it looks as if the figures are chosen to support the policy rather than the policy being based on the figures.' Ouch!
